The NWO-division of WOTRO Science for Global Development invites applications for the programme Social Protection - Research for Inclusive Development in Sub-Sahara Africa. Letters of Intent must be submitted September 1, 2014. The programme aims at enhancing the insight in the cost-effectiveness of social protection interventions in achieving inclusive growth in specified Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs), compared to other social policies that aim to achieve the same objective.

Proposals should focus on comparative, country-case studies and on the medium and long term impact on household or community level of regular social protection programmes.
The budget available for this call is € 2,100,000. Funding is up to € 300,000 for a project duration of 24 months. Deadline for submitting proposals is October 1, 2014.
